you have to put this list in a form...
<form name="select_name" action="eval.php" method="post">

in eval.php you may write like:
//and variable1 is now the "option_value" selected

echo $variable1;

where "option_value" is the value written in the list...generated by php
if I have a list with 4 values like:
<option value="one">value number one-first</option>
<option value="two">value number two -second</option>
<option value="three">value number three -third</option>
<option value="four">value number four fourth</option>

here the "option_value" is one or two or three or four....

so variable1 is now passed from one page to another..

if you have any questions or you are of a different opinion write to me again
